Mount and Blade gallops on to 0.952
Development Info - posted by Fez on Mon 19 May 2008, 00:01:20Tags: Armagan; Mount & Blade; TaleWorlds
Taleworld's Mount & Blade has had an update to version 0.952, with the aim of squashing bugs introduced in the previous main 0.950 update and improving performance. All part of the slow march towards that official retail release.
Armagan had little detail on the changes to add:
Many thanks for your kind feedback on the past two versions. We have been able to fix a number of bugs and improve the performance of the game. We hope that version 0.952 will be more stable and more fun to play. As usual, please let us know if there are any bugs so that we can try to fix them as soon as possible.
If you want to know more then your best option is to try it for yourself. You can find a list of sites hosting both the small upgrade patch to apply to the previous versions and the new full installer for download here.
There have been a few reported changes to game elements such as troop trees, party skills, item modifiers, increases in PC army limits/leadership bonuses, save slots and rag dolls. An experimental update, despite it being a 'bugfix' on the face of it. If you've been following M&B for a while then you will know only too well that Armagan seems to enjoy letting the players find out for themselves everything he changed through playing it rather than post it all for them. If you are new to this or simply haven't tried the game yet then think of this as a medieval Pirates! but on horseback and with some RPG-style elements thrown in for good measure. It has some of the best real-time cavalry combat out there too.
